everything the trailer said. is the exact same thoughts I had when I saw this

will this bring fear?
or joy?

right now that wont matter. cause the promise has finally FINALLY Been fufilled.
now is just the very looooooooooooooooooooooooooong wait before it gets released.

the only thing I would hope for the sequal would be that they add parts they added later in thier prequals. such as thoose character and the former Friends of Sepiroth.
but thats highly unlikely. I even hope they would remake the other FF games too.

hapiness is in the air.

Well there was the GameBoy Advance version, but if you're talking something along the lines of the DS version of FF4, that'd be cool. Surprised it hasn't happened, actually. The 3DS and Vita would be perfect for it and V.

Okay, serious though, I really hope this is good. FF VII is great, but there are some areas that can really be improved. Especially the translation.

"This guy are sick."

FF7's translation is terrible, but at the same time it's so bad that I can't help but love it. Stuff like Cloud saying "Let's mosey!" at the end, or Cid's "goddamn tea" speech, or the options in the Battle Arena being "No, Way!" and "Off Course!" are a huge part of the game's charm to me for some reason. And then there's the really dumb stuff that you can't believe they missed, like the "Touph Ring". I'd be oddly disappointed if "This guy are sick." got cut even though it's one of the most blatant messups.

I dunno, to me, part of what I love about FF7 is that despite its serious tone and gritty nature, it's such a goofy game. The chibi character models and the awful translation, and the really weird scenes like Miss Cloud, everything at the Honeybee Inn, the fat Shinra dude getting randomly hit by a truck out of nowhere, or the slappy fight between Tifa and Scarlet, those are part of what made it such a memorable experience with a real heart, and in spite of their jarring nature they somehow didn't detract from the overarching game at all.

The one thing that definitely needs to be retranslated is that bizarre sequence at the Honeybee Inn where Cloud says, "Hmm. That's how you'll fool them." and then Aerith says "Hmmmmmmm. So that's how you fooled them." Makes no goddamn sense.

Also "attack while its tail's up!"

There are certain elements that I do want preserved. That more has to do with the weird, surreal parts like the Honeybee Inn than most of the awkward translation. Although the goddamn tea line is incredible and should be kept in my opinion.

I suppose that is the biggest worry of mine with this remake. I don't want it played for pure camp, but I also don't want the game to no longer have that quarky charm.

I could quote the old translation all day.
"Cloud, you 'jes full of surprises."
